Tephra Fine Arts Festival

What was previously known as the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival, now known as the Tephra Institute of Contemporary Arts (Tephra ICA) will take place in person from May 20 – 22. This one-of-a-kind fundraiser for Tephra ICA attracts 20,000 people to the Reston Town Center. By 2022, artists will be traveling from 30 U.S. states and two international locations to exhibit and sell their work. 

The Tephra ICA festival sets itself apart by providing one-on-one experiences with the featured artists. There is a Festival Friday, which makes the event accessible to the area’s many employees. Then, a Saturday night Festival Cocktail Hour, where the presentation of the Artist Awards takes place. With site-specific performances taking place throughout the weekend. 

The headlining performance of the 2022 Tephra ICA Festival will be presented by Trisha Brown Dance Company. The TBDC will present Trisha Brown: In Plain Site, a performance that focuses on audience engagement and an intimate experience for less not as familiar with contemporary dance. 

Celebrate the fine arts at the Tephra Institute of Contemporary Arts Festival on May 20th, 21st, and 22nd.
